There may be times when all the preparation in the world couldn’t save you from the effects of a natural disaster. In this case, how can you dig yourself out of the problems that arise in the aftermath? The answer is finding hope. (h/t to ReadyNutrition.com)
A preparedness lifestyle involves keeping yourself updated with current events in order to prepare for them. Listening to weather forecasts and crime news can help you determine what you need and which areas could be affected by potential threats or disasters. However, this also means exposing yourself to bad news nearly every day. This could change your outlook on life, turning them bleak. When humans experience devastating defeats or a terrifying event, they may find it easy to lose all motivation to change their life or their situation, which leads to a feeling of hopelessness.
Hope is defined as an optimistic mindset based on expecting positive results. However, hope acts differently from your typical form of positivity. When humans experience positive emotions, they usually come from a feeling of safety and satiety. Hope, however, comes from the direst of times. You can lose your house and all your belongings, but hope can help you push through a tough situation.

“Hope literally opens us up. It removes the blinders of fear and despair and allows us to see the big picture. We become creative, unleashing our dreams for the future. This is because deep within the core of hope is the belief that things can change,” said Barbara Fredrickson, Ph.D. in an article on Psychology Today.
In the face of a disaster, here are a few tips on building up hope in yourself and the people around you:
Being prepared involves having the mental fortitude to push yourself forward in any situation. There is always a way to survive if you keep hope alive and carry on.
